Orchard Primary School

School Ethos

Our School will provide a warm, welcoming environment where the value, respect and self-esteem of individuals is promoted through our commitment to equality of opportunity.  The whole school community will ensure that the environment will be stimulating and conducive to learning.  There will be clear expectations of behaviour and our aim is for every child to reach their full potential in learning and behaviour through quality provision and differentiated activities.  To facilitate this there will be a variety of appropriate resources, teaching styles and experiences.  Partnership between all members of the school community is fundamental to achieving all we believe in.
